📼First steps in tech sales. Tip #1: Start as a sales development representative. This is a fantastic role If you're graduating from college and want to get into the tech world. It’s also a great opportunity if you are looking to move from a different industry to tech sales. This is going to teach you the foundation of what it takes to be a successful sales executive in the future!
📼Tech sales inspiration. Tip #2: Find a mentor. When you start your career as a sales development representative at a particular company, look at the people who are inspiring to you or a position where you see yourself being one day. This could be your CRO, it could be the VP of sales, it could be the top account executives that are closing the most deals. Reach out to them and see if they'd be open to having a coffee once a month, or if they'd be interested in a Zoom meeting if you're remote. Get that time to ask pointed questions!
Get Into Tech Sales With Your Right Foot - Tip #3: Update Your LinkedIn
LinkedIn is a fantastic way to represent yourself to the professional world. You should have a profile photo that represents you in the best way. It should make you look approachable and confident. This is really important; it’s how you want to be seen. Also, add a bio that is descriptive of you and sells yourself. It should be very specific to the job you are applying for. If you are looking for a job and you found the one you want to apply for, it doesn't hurt to reach out to the hiring manager or the recruiter at that company and drop them an email and connect. That's going to make you stand out from the crowd!
